You Said

Felpham Village Centre – consultation results    

Thank you for responding to the Village Centre Consultation.  There were 158 responses

Vicarage lane Junction:

Using a statistical model to evaluate your ranking responses option two came out ahead followed by option three a close second: 

The prevalent features of these two options were to retain the wider road junction and retain a pedestrian island, to retain a wider crossing point outside the Beauty shop and to have a wide carriageway surface marking.

Limmer Lane Junction:

Using the same statistical model as before option one came out ahead closely followed by option two. These two options include retaining as much parking as possible and to establish a safe crossing point.

Surface colour:

Of those that responded to this question 50% were in favour of a red colour, 24% preferred buff and 26% preferred to leave the surface black.

20mph Limit

71% of respondents supported the village wide limit and 29% did not.

Additional Features

Flower planters were the most desired extra feature with 87 positive responses.

Vicarage lane:

Having viewed your most favoured choices I have briefed our designer to go away and design the next stage of the proposal keeping your views firmly in mind.  We will look to retain the pedestrian crossing island on the junction and will take a serious look at the possibility of a zebra crossing.

Limmer Lane:

We feel you are most concerned with having sufficient parking bays but closely concerned with having a safe crossing point.  I will try and progress both of these options into the next stage of the design.

Overview

This consulttaion concerns the changes to Felpham Road at the junctions of Vicarage Lane and Limmer Lane.  Both of these junctions form the gateway to the heart of the village. The improvements proposed are intended to reduce the speed of traffic to the point where a village wide 20mph limit can be introduced, improve pedestrian safety by improving and adding safe crossing points and mitigate some of the traffic changes that have arisen from development within the village.  This consultation offers a variety of options for consideration by residents and businesses of Felpham and anybody else who has an interest in the future of Felpham .

The options are set out for consideration to allow us to understand what the residents of Felpham feel is right for their village centre. These options are only ideas at this stage and the ideas and opinions of village residents will guide the development of these two important areas.

Why We Are Consulting

Approximately £1m contribution was secured from the Blakes Mead developer to pay for works to cover any issues that might arise on the existing road network. It was agreed that this would be split approximately 50/50 to fund Felpham Relief Road mitigation measures and Comet Corner Improvements.  Locally elected Members decided on a list of schemes to be developed within Felpham.

At a public meeting in October 2015 local residents and businesses expressed concern about elements of the Felpham Relief Road mitigation measure proposals.  In response, the Director of Highways and Transport deferred any works, promised a review and that a wider consultation would be undertaken before any works were reprogrammed.

In March 2015 the Joint Western Arun Area Committee (JWAAC) agreed to a further consultation reaching out to the wider community.

 

 

What Happens Next

The results and comments recieved during the consultation will be evaluated to determine whether there is a consensus on the type of improvements the residents would like to see.  Comments recieved will be reviewed and any that have merit and are sensible and afforable will be developed as the next part of the detailed design.
